Celebration at Destiny’s Elementary School
On August 28, 2021, the 5th class and all of Destiny’s friends, teachers and staff came together to honor the life of Destiny.
It was a very emotional day with lots of tears, support, and hugs, as we all shared in our memories of her. Destiny’s closest friends presented a beautifully painted Friendship Bench in her honor. Destiny’s sweet friend Piper explained how the friendship bench worked. Anyone who is having a tough day, can go and sit on the bench. A friend who sees them sitting on the bench can come sit with them and encourage them to make their day better.
We could all use a friendship bench in our lives, couldn’t we? Dustin and I are so proud to have this beautiful bench displayed at Destiny’s elementary school for years to come.
Balloons were released in honor of Destiny after the bench dedication.
